The First Star

If I could have wings and pass over the sky
Fly beyond the universe
And reach somewhere where nothing is the same
I'd like to make you see how much my face has changed
Some wrinkles have scratched me
As you see, the years pass
But I haven't closed my heart
 
I can still love
I have a thousand dreams still to follow
And I know to whom I should gift the most beautiful one
The lost time to give back
To whoever should forgive me someday
 
I wish I had your eyes in mine1
To look together
At all that you maybe didn't see
You know how many times
I begged for your help
And I also begged to God
Because I always felt he was mine
 
How many times I looked for you
And spoke to you
And hoped, as I looked with my eyes turned up
That that first lit star
Was you
 
Now a flower can blossom even without sun
A son can be born
Even without making love
Those who are ready to die
Don't have a cross hanged on their walls
Because there's an open door over the sea
To those who try to run away from the wars
We can save ourselves from the old evil
And I could have also see you grow old
 
I wish I had your eyes in mine1
To look together
At all that you maybe didn't see
You know how many times
I begged for your help
And I also begged to God
Because I always felt he was mine
 
How many times I looked for you
And spoke to you
And hoped, as I looked with my eyes turned up
That that first lit star
Was you
 
I listen to your voice
But it's in my head
All that I can do
Is caress a photograph
 
How many times I looked for you
And spoke to you
And hoped
As I looked with my eyes turned up
That that first lit star
Was you
 
  • 1. a. b. I wish I could see your eyes
